You guys know how much I love the Twitterverse so I wanted to share information about an upcoming Twitter Chat. Twitter Chat’s are a great way to meet cool people with similar interests.

#CreativeReads Chat will be discussing Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon.
I usually follow along with the chat on HootSuite using #creativereads. You can also follow along on Twitter using the same hashtag. Please feel free to join in on the convo!
If you’re anything like me and you like to learn new things, then you will love the “global market place for classes” known as Skillshare. Skillshare is an online community of everyday, ordinary people who share their talents with those who are willing to learn. You can find classes on topics from how to make shoes to how to build iPhone apps.
Last month I dived into the Skillshare community and took an online photography class entitled – Street Photography: Capture the Scenes of your City taught by photographer, Kaitlin Rebesco. Although this wasn’t my first time taking an online class, it was my first time with Skillshare and I absolutely loved it! This particular class was 2 weeks long and only cost me $12. Not only did Kaitlin have live office hours once a week to discuss assignments, she also provided excellent street photography resources. There was also great interaction between the students. I’m still friends with some of my classmates on Twitter and Instagram.
So, if you’re in the mood for learning, go on over to Skillshare.com and see what interests you. Let me know what you find!

“You learn something as you create or appreciate the creative contributions of others. The message becomes, ‘someone was here before me — someone survived — and that means I can.’”
